Artist John Dowd did not reinvent himself when he arrived in Provincetown, Massachusetts, immediately after college. He found himself.
His backstory is not an uncommon one for those drawn to Cape Cod. A native of Western Massachusetts and the son of two teachers, he pursued higher education at the University of Notre Dame’s School of Architecture and graduated with the offer of a job and a career path set firmly in front of him. But before he started work, he decided to spend a summer by the sea and headed for Provincetown. He never left. Today, he divides his year between New York and the Cape.
Rarer is how immediate Dowd’s success was. His job that summer of 1983 was as a houseboy at a bed-and-breakfast, but in his spare time he worked with oils, an avocation begun in childhood when he painted in the basement of his family home. He placed several pieces for sale in a local gift shop, and they drew the eye of a couple of art collectors who tracked him down. They encouraged him to delay his architectural career and spend the next six months painting, a venture they offered to underwrite. Within the year, he sold almost every painting he produced that winter and quickly established a following that continues to grow. He is the headlining artist at Provincetown’s William-Scott Gallery, and such is his reputation and the emotional appeal of his work that 80 percent of his canvases are sold before a show opens.
In its sixth season, this studio gallery of Provincetown artist James Frederick is located on the first floor of Whaler’s Wharf, just steps from Commercial St. Frederick paints, illustrates on wood panels, draws comics and authors destination coloring books. Original artworks, comic books, Color Me P-Town, Color Me Cape Cod, and accessories are available. The studio hosts opening receptions on selected Fridays from 7-9. See website for schedule.
Julie Tremblay’s fine art photography captures the quality of light with her landscape images from Cape Cod and abroad. Her work is shown exclusively at Julie Tremblay Gallery, located across from town hall in Provincetown, MA, now in it’s tenth year.
